Bantam Royals update for April

The Bantam AAA North Island Royals baseball team, formerly the Blizzard, is off to a very good start to the 2013 season.

The Bantam AAA North Island Royals baseball team, formerly the Blizzard, is off to a very good start to the 2013 season. The team, made up of players from Campbell River, Powell River and the Comox Valley, are 11 games into their 39 game season. With a record of 5 wins and 6 losses, the team is well ahead of their 0 and 12 start from the 2012 season.  The Royals have had to overcome their share of adversity with 9 of the 11 games being on the road, and many of the games being threatened and delayed by rain. Returning players Liam Janzen, William Drewry, Adam McKillican, Jacob Ingersoll and Braxten Barnes have brought some experience to the mix while new additions, Wyatt Strachan, Bryce Stromquist, Ethan Brunton, Nolan Baker and Corey Bukauskas have added some hard work and energy to the club. The team also welcomes Jayden Saban and Austin Brown who, twice a week, make the crossing from Powell River to complete the 12 man roster

The boys are very excited to play their 1st home games this weekend, when the rival Burnaby Braves come over for a 12:00pm game on Saturday May 4th at Bill Moore park. The Royals take to the field again on Sunday with a double header against the 7 -1 Tri City Indians. Games get under way at 11 am on Sunday. For a complete schedule go to BC Minor website and follow the link to Bantam AAA North Island Royals. The Royals team would like to thank their sponsors: Hamilton Logging, Drewry Electric, The Best Western Hotel, Halls West, Fox Disposal, Comox Valley Subway, Superior Propane and the Comox Valley Baseball Association.
